ScienceGuy's Level Set #3

Postby ScienceGuy2012 on Sat Nov 24, 2012 5:23 pm

Theme: Mazes
These aren't mazes where you have to find the path, but rather build a way to the goal. Some of these are ones I think are nice but are not mines, and the credit is given to the creators. If you are the creator of one of the mazes here and you do not want me to put it here, just tell me.
First 5 levels are practice, no records, don't post your solves, the levels will be public anyway (published).

Pro tip: When you name a level impossible, it shouldn't take less than an hour:

The new one isn't all that more difficult, just requires a faster first tosser, and possibly a timed cata at the end instead of the bridge.

Just saying, you've gone from actually-physically impossible, to a rather averagely difficult one.

well, I didn't really mean impossible, I was just exaggerating the difficulty.
And maybe would you like to try the other levels instead?

Oh and I set the first record for bookshelf to get you guys going

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11838942 Over the wall, under

I have a few problems with "Digestion"
First of all, the balls don't fit through the first opening: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11838945

And even if they did, they couldn't all fit in the goal... http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?levelId=610072

Bookshelf in 312 ticks: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11839077
Can probably be trimmed more but I'm tired of messing with it.

I made a modification and sheared off a few ticks.
Your wood stopper was ineffecient, so I replaced it with an angled ramp, allowing the ball to maintain speed. It doesn't shave off a lot of ticks, but rather only a few because the angled ramp slightly increases the distance the ball must travel.

Used your idea and got down to 7 pcs. thnx ken75. Might work on further tweaking.

For the challenge levels, I highly reccomend you post your progress for 2 reasons:
1.Collaborating
2.Progress Tracking
So unless you want to go solo at them, do it. It makes things a lot easier. Just do it even if you only have the first step. You might have a team working on just one design, whether that team would be a group of several, or just partners.
